BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is set to launch their long-awaited offensive in northern Latakia in the next few days, a military source told Al-Masdar News this evening.

According to the military source, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Division and Republican Guard have been given the green light to begin this offensive in Latakia’s Jabal Al-Akrad and Jabal Turkmen regions.

The source said the offensive will be launched from at least three axes, with the primary focus being the key town of Kabbani, which overlooks the northern part of the Al-Ghaab Plain.

Also participating in this upcoming offensive will be the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), and the Local Defense Forces (LDF).

The Syrian Army and their allies will be facing off against a large number of jihadist rebels from groups like Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party (TIP).

In addition to these groups, the Syrian Army may come across the Turkish military, as they currently have a non-agreed upon observation post along the northern slope of Jabal Al-Akrad.

d**n right, from me as well. This battle must have both air support and air defence from both Stria and Russia, otherwise I have a feeling that it will be interrupted by one or both of the vermin backers.

I click down any bigotry since it promotes sectarianism.
Politics is already enough complicated and messy with rational people, we don’t need irrational freaks believing in fairy tales to make thing worst.

Next few years means …what ? another month ? Turkey is getting every time stronger and stronger in Idlib, and it is difficult to think that Russia will be on the side of Syria against Turkey (because of the economical ties ).
